Those looking for a new car can't do better than Chevrolet. This automaker was founded in Detroit in 1911 and today does business in 100 countries around the world, selling over four million cars and trucks a year. Throughout the last century, Chevy has perfected its vehicles and grown to become one of the most well-known brands in the automotive industry. Drivers looking to partner with a company dedicated to its customers should look to the bowtie brand.
Chevy focuses on vehicles with strong and attractive designs that are just as exciting to drive as they are to witness. These models are laden with user-friendly technology and advanced safety features, all at a generous price. With a wide range of cars—from sedans and crossovers to full-size SUVs, pickup trucks, and even commercial vehicles—you're sure to find a Chevy to fit your needs and budget, and McCluskey Chevrolet is just the car dealership in Cincinnati to help you on your quest.
Chevy is the best brand for Cincinnatians. We all know the weather here can vary, from July's smothering heat to January's blistering cold. We get more rainfall than the average city, more snow than we'd like, and more days with precipitation than without, so you'll naturally want a car that can handle it all, especially on wet roads. Even Chevy's smallest-ever subcompact, the recently-discontinued Spark, is equipped for when the weather becomes overwhelming, with a high-strength steel safety cage, ten airbags, a backup camera, and a suite of sensor technology.
While other manufacturers only provide advanced safety features on larger or higher-end models, even an inexpensive pre-owned Spark has available automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, and lane departure warnings, among other indispensable driver assistance tools. This sensor suite is available throughout the Chevrolet lineup, so no matter what size vehicle you need, you can have all the oversight features you're looking for.
So, what's new with Chevy's latest selection of vehicles? Well, the Trax makes an appearance in the Chevy lineup after a year-long hiatus. This version of the Trax is better than ever, with a larger build, a more spacious interior, plus more standard features to enhance the ride like never before in this subcompact showstopper.
In other SUV news, the fan-favorite compact Equinox and the alluring midsize Blazer both receive EV status this year, giving drivers even more options to elevate their ride in a Chevy. The iconic Corvette also debuts its first electric offering, the E-Ray, to bring even more excitement to the EV world; this model can get off the line faster than any Corvette before it.
As far as trucks are concerned, there's much to be excited about for 2024. The Silverado HD models, especially, have undergone quite an evolution. With more power milked from their 6.6L Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine, plus more tech than ever and ultra-comfortable cabins, the HD models are ready to delight. You can also find the first-ever HD ZR2 available to seriously heighten your experience in the elements. Taking these trusted workhorses and arming them with the ZR2 badge of honor was a genius decision, and you can prepare for pure glee when traversing dangerous terrain.
Speaking of off-roading, the Colorado ZR2 Bison makes a splash with American Expedition Vehicles-inspired elements, including 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels, fender flares, bumpers, and more durable elements. With a best-in-class approach angle of 38.2 degrees, electronically locking front and rear differentials, and segment-exclusive Multimatic front and rear Jounce Control Dampers, the Colorado ZR2 Bison can travel anywhere it dares with the ultimate ferocity.
There's a Chevy model designed for every driver, and if you're one of the many Cincinnatians who prioritize affordability, shopping on the pre-owned market may be the right move for you. Whether you're searching for a comfortable vehicle that'll get you to work at Proctor & Gamble or you're a student at the University of Cincinnati searching for a budget-friendly option, we have just what you're looking for.
From SUVs to sedans, trucks to family travelers, Chevrolet showcases a lineup of dependable vehicles with top safety features, comfortable cabin experiences, and plenty of features to improve the drive. When you buy used, you can be more comprehensive about what you want in a vehicle instead of limiting your search to what you can afford. From technology to capabilities, having access to last year's top-dollar features at a more affordable price pushes a large portion of our buyers to our exceptional used inventory.
McCluskey Chevrolet offers our customers more than other dealerships can with our patented nationwide search tool. This specialized software allows you to search for the ideal used vehicle across dealerships nationwide; if you don't find exactly what you're looking for here on our lot, you may be able to find it elsewhere.

This tool recommends only the highest-quality vehicles, so you won't have to worry about any lemons sneaking into the mix; these are the best of the nation's used models, all available in one easy-to-use search tool.
Just because we offer this exclusive tool doesn't mean that our used lot isn't stocked with outstanding options. Our team seeks to ensure that our on-site visitors have an assortment of fine Chevy models to pour over right here on our lot. This way, you have a chance to find a perfect fit and get directly to making your time on the road everything you've ever wanted. That's why more Cincinnati drivers trust McCluskey Chevrolet when they want to experience one of the best used inventories in the business.
On the small end of Chevy's lineup is the aforementioned Spark, which was discontinued in 2023. It has an EPA-estimated 33 MPG combined, and its 1.4L engine with 98 hp allows you to zip around our seven hills with ease. There's also a standard 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with two USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and an available 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. Some trim models even have keyless entry and push-button start, as well as heated seats. And, remember, this was Chevy's smallest subcompact; these convenience and luxury features carry through and improve as you move to larger and more current models.
If you're looking for something that sits a little higher and can seat adults a bit more comfortably, direct your gaze to a Chevy crossover or SUV. The subcompact 2021 Trailblazer is perfect for taking a weekend road trip from Cincinnati over the border and down to Kentucky's Bourbon Trail; it has 54.4 cu.ft. of cargo space and can comfortably seat five with best-in-class rear-seat legroom. The rear seats fold flat along with the front passenger seat so that you can haul items up to 8.5 feet in length. All Trailblazer trim lines come standard with a rear vision camera, a following distance indicator, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, and IntelliBeam automatic high beams. The innovative Teen Driver mode and rear-seat reminders are also standard on this Trailblazer.
Chevy SUVs continue to grow in size from the subcompact Trax to the compact Equinox, to the classic midsize Blazer, to the three-row Traverse, to the full-size Tahoe and Suburban. The 2021 Suburban has an available 420 hp and a best-in-class maximum cargo space of just under 145 cu.ft. Also best in its class is the legroom in this Suburban's second row, complimenting its expanded third row. Its power-sliding console moves up to ten inches to allow for convenient between-seat storage, and there's even a hidden storage drawer for everyone's extra keys and electronics when you're the designated driver for a night out in Over-the-Rhine. This model is also great for family vacations, as it has plenty of room for the kids, everyone's luggage, and whatever you end up buying at the gift shop.
Of course, we can't talk about Chevrolet without talking about the Silverado. First introduced as a light-duty pickup in 1999, the Silverado has gone through many iterations and adaptations, with numerous variances in cab lengths, bed sizes, and engine options being made available across the past quarter-century.
While its durability and reliability align with the competition, the Silverado is renowned for its exceptionally smooth ride. On the smaller side of the Silverado is the midsize Colorado, while on the other end of Chevy's pickup spectrum is the Silverado HD Series. If you're looking for a hardworking pickup with the dependability of American manufacturing, McCluskey Chevrolet will get you on the road and around the Queen City in no time.
If you're looking for something lean and green, you'll want to check out Chevy's all-electric Bolt. This subcompact hatchback's second-year iteration can go an estimated 259 miles on a full charge—nearly 10% more than previous models. The Chevrolet mobile app can keep you updated on your Bolt EV's charge, as well as traffic and weather, to make your drive as efficient and dependable as possible. There's also a 10.2-inch touchscreen and full compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If you're a driver who wants to make the jump into the electric future, and at a fraction of the price of buying new, consider a pre-owned Bolt EV.
Finally, we can't talk about the Camaro and the Corvette. A pre-owned Camaro begins at a price point lower than you might expect for a classic muscle car, at under $20k. With up to 650 hp, the Camaro can go from zero to sixty in 3.5 seconds—and its bold curvature is just as recognizable as ever. The Corvette may have fewer horses under the hood than the best Camaro, but it can do that zero-to-sixty race in just 2.9 seconds and reach a top track speed of 194 mph.
The Corvette has seen the same reliable engine and body reproduced over the past five years, so dipping into the used market will get you the same quality of ride at a far more generous price. The performance motors and handling of the Camaro and Corvette make them exceptional pre-owned purchases, with the only sacrifices being slightly less fashionable accoutrements and a minor difference in fuel economy.
When you're looking to buy used, you may want to choose from a newer selection with low mileage, taking advantage of many perks along the way. If this is you, shopping from our Certified Pre-Owned inventory will be your ideal avenue. Whether you're frequently stuck in traffic and need a more efficient commuter or are looking for more space for your family for your weekend jaunts, our Chevy CPO inventory has something for you.
Choosing a CPO Chevy allows you to shop for models younger than six years and with fewer than 75,000 miles on their odometers. These vehicles have also passed a strict 172-point inspection to ensure their quality—but that's not all.
In addition to having a clean title and an accompanying Vehicle History Report, these vehicles are covered under two factory-backed warranties. A six-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty covers many internal components of your vehicle, while a 12-month/12,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty covers many of your vehicle's parts from front to back, providing you with optimal peace of mind for your future journeys. You can also take advantage of roadside assistance and a limited trial of SiriusXM radio.
Many drivers seek the assurance of buying a CPO vehicle, especially when they're looking for a near-new model in impeccable condition. The bowtie brand is already one of the most respected automakers in the industry due to the longevity of their vehicle; when you have that extra confidence in your vehicle, through the CPO program, you're able to travel everywhere from Cincinnati to Louisville, Dayton, Lexington, and beyond without any of the worries traditionally associated with "used cars." Whether you're in need of a tough truck to help you on the job site or an everyday driver to afford you an oasis during rush hour, our Chevy CPO inventory is sure to have something you'll love.
Financing a vehicle doesn't have to be difficult, and it certainly doesn't need to be stressful. That's why McCluskey Chevrolet's experienced finance team is ready to help you every step of the way. If you have questions about the vehicle financing process, you're not alone, so let's answer some of your top questions...
A. Both options have their advantages, so this is ultimately up to you. If you'd prefer to enjoy a new car every 24-36 months, or you'd like smaller monthly payments, leasing may be the right choice for you. On the other hand, if you want to own your car outright after all payments have been made, taking out a traditional auto loan may be more your flavor.
A. Certainly—we make it easy to get started before you even leave your home. You can browse vehicles here on our website as well as get pre-approved for financing, value your trade, and calculate your payments quickly and easily. This way, you're prepared and know what to expect when it's finally time to purchase your next vehicle.
A. Yes! We have spent years building up our network of lenders so that we're able to provide the best rates and payment plans to our customers. We work with top-quality local lenders because we know how important it is for you to have confidence in the group with whom you will begin a financial relationship.
A. When you apply for a vehicle loan, there will be a hard inquiry into your credit score. The good news is that this doesn't typically affect customers' credit scores by very much—a couple of points at most. If you're concerned about your credit, we recommend paying off as much debt as possible and budgeting to always make on-time payments; this way, you place yourself in better standing with credit bureaus.
McCluskey Chevrolet is the dealership you want when shopping for a new or used vehicle. Conveniently located on our city's northern edge, we are easily accessible to Landen, Beckett Ridge, Mason, Fairfield, Loveland, and Hamilton. We are likewise not too far from Columbus, Indianapolis, and Louisville, so even the dedicated out-of-towner is within driving distance.
You can get pre-qualified and pre-approved for your new Chevy well before you step foot onto our campus. Pre-qualification requires a more basic review of your finances, whereas a pre-approval can give you a better idea of what your budget can get you. You can even shop our online inventory based on your preferred down payment and monthly payment.
Another online option we provide is figuring out what your payment would be for your dream Chevy. Of course, these online calculators are far from the final word. No matter how the initial tests pan out, our finance department is here to get you into your perfect ride.
Another way McCluskey Chevrolet stands above our peers is that we are a Certified GM Green Dealer. In addition to selling the Bolt EV and the newly-electric versions of popular models like the Blazer and Silverado, our facility has been recognized for its energy efficiency. From energy reduction to renewable energy use to water conservation efforts and recycling, we've made our commitment to the betterment of the environment well-known.
